Definitions Area Agency on Aging (AAA)

A local (city or county) agency, or non-profit funded under the federal Older Americans Act, that serves as a one stop shop to provide information, assistance and resources for persons 60 years of age or older and their caregivers. The network of AAA offices consists of more than 600 approved agencies. In Prince George’s County, the Department of Family Services, Aging and Disabilities Services Division serves as the local AAA. Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC)

Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) serve as single points of entry into the long-term services and supports (LTSS) system for older adults, people with disabilities, caregivers, veterans and families. Some states refer to ADRCs as “access points” or “no wrong door” systems. Adult Medical Day Care

Adult Day Care Programs are designed to offer a safe environment for functionally impaired older adults who are unable to remain home alone. They can be a welcome respite for families and spouses caring for a loved one. Adult Day programs provide clients with structured activity and, when needed, assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). There are 2 types of adult day programs: 1) Adult Day Care (ADC), which offers personal care services, and 2) Adult Day Health (ADH), which offers personal care as well as skilled nursing and rehab services. Some day programs are designed specifically for persons needing memory care and support. Transportation is often an option at most centers. Assistive Technology/Devices

An assistive technology device is “any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.”

Caregiver Support

If you provide support and assistance with various activities to a family member, friend, or neighbor then you are a caregiver. A caregiver may provide emotional or financial support, as well as hands-on help with different tasks. Caregivers can use the formal and informal supports that are available. Caregiving may also be done from long distance. Caregiving can be individuals who are unpaid or paid. Durable Medical Supplies

Medical supply companies provide durable medical equipment (DME) that your doctor prescribes for use in your home. Only your doctor can prescribe medical equipment for you. Durable Medical Supplies meet these criteria: • Durable – long lasting • Used for a medical reason • Not usually useful to someone who is not sick or injured • Used in your home Examples of DME are items such as blood sugar monitor, test strips, braces (arm, leg, back and neck), canes, commode chairs, home oxygen equipment and supplies, hospital beds, wheelchairs, infusion pumps, etc. Medicare Part B usually covers durable medical equipment prescribed by your doctor. Financial Services/Insurance

There are a wide variety of insurance programs which range from health, life, home, and Long-Term Care. The local Area Agency on Aging provides counselors to assist with some forms of insurance that relate to Medicare and/or Medicaid. Consumers need to weigh options and compare plans to ensure coverage that best fits the individual’s needs. Housing Options • Assisted Living Facility (ALF) Assisted Living facilities provide services to residents who need assistance with personal care, medication management, and/or home management but do not require skilled health care. Assisted living facilities can be a small home in a community with as little as two to three residents or larger facilities with private apartments. 5


Definitions • Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) CCRCs provide 3 levels of accommodations: independent living, personal care/assisted living, and skilled nursing/rehab on the same campus. Services vary by level of accommodation. Most CCRCs require new residents to pay a one-time entrance fee prior to admission. Entrance fee refund policies vary. All CCRCs require payment of monthly or daily service fees. • Independent Living Independent or Retirement Living Communities are most appropriate for those who can manage their health care needs on their own or with assistance from family or private caregivers in an apartment type setting. Independent Living does not offer health care services or assistance, but may offer a monthly meal plan, housekeeping, social activities, and transportation. • Subsidized Housing HUD’s Section 202 Supportive Housing for the elderly provides rental housing for low-income tenants who are at least 62 years old with household incomes no greater than 50 percent of the area’s average. Geriatric Care Management

A geriatric care manager is a professional who specializes in assisting older adults, disabled individuals, and their families with all of their care needs, as well as connecting them with a wide network of services, benefits, programs and facilities in the community. They also serve as an advocate for their client’s health, safety and quality of life. Hospice Services

Hospice care provides end-of-life care to patients with a terminal illness and a life expectancy of less than 6 months. Because most people prefer to stay at home, services are usually provided in the home setting as opposed to an in-patient facility. Services are provided by an inter-disciplinary clinical team including nurses, certified nursing assistants (CNAs), social workers, volunteers, bereavement counselors, chaplains, and medical directors.

6

Home Care (Non-medical)

Home health care can provide companion care, and personal care to an individual in their home. Services may include light housekeeping, hygiene assistance, medication reminders, meal preparation, shopping, and escort services. Fees vary for this service, usually private-pay and typically are not covered by insurance. Home Health Care (Skilled)

Doctor’s orders are needed to begin skilled care. Services are provided to patients in their homes, typically for up to 60 days, and often following a hospital discharge. Skilled nursing is provided by RNs and LPNs, and rehabilitation services (such as physical therapy and speech therapy) are provided by licensed therapists. Home Health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF). Covered by most insurances. Legal Services/Elder Law/Estate Planning

Elder Law Attorneys are dedicated to helping seniors and their families with legal matters. They can provide guidance and assistance with creating important documents such as the durable medical power of attorney, health care power of attorney, financial power of attorney, a living will, a trust, and a last will and testament. In the event a situation arises and none of these documents is in place an elder law attorney can help the family navigate the legal proceeding necessary to acquire legal authority, known as guardianship. Additionally, when a loved one passes away, an elder law attorney can assist the family with the probate process. Long Term Care

Long term care is the medical and social care given to people who have severe chronic impairments. It may include care in the home by family members, voluntary or employed assistance such as a home care agency, or in an institution such as a nursing home.


Medicaid

A joint federal and state program that helps with medical costs for some people with limited income and resources. Medicaid programs vary from state to state, but most health care costs are covered if you qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. Medicare

Medicare is the federal health insurance program for: • People who are 65 or older who have paid into Social Security. • Certain younger people with disabilities. • People with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a transplant, sometimes called ESRD) Options Counseling

A person-centered service for older individuals, persons with disabilities, and/or their caregivers. It is an interactive decision-support process whereby consumers, family members and/or significant others are supported in their discussions to determine appropriate long-term care choices that best meet their needs, preferences, values and individual circumstances. Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Facilities

A skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility or nursing home provides 24-hour nursing supervision for those who medically need it. Skilled nursing facilities ensure medical, psychological, or social needs are met. These facilities offer a full range of care including rehabilitation, and specialized nutritional, social service and activity programs. Skilled Nursing Facilities can be very helpful in gaining necessary rehabilitation and providing for a person’s needs for both long and short term situations. Real Estate Services

Real estate agents work with property buyers or sellers and help them navigate the complex nature of the property market. Agents talk with clients to find out what kind of property they want and what they are willing to sell or pay, and any specific amenities they are seeking. They work with a real estate broker to find properties that suit their client’s needs.

Senior Centers/Recreation/Leisure

Today’s seniors are very active with a wide range of interests, abilities, and resources. Senior centers have and continue to evolve to meet the changing and growing diverse needs. Senior centers offer a variety of classes, trips, special events, educational workshops, activities and senior resources. Senior centers frequently are community focal points providing a place where older adults come together for services and activities and connect with each other and the community. Senior Move Transition Specialist/ Professional Organizers

Sometimes the desire to downsize and/or move is high but the task of doing so is overwhelming. Professional organizers and senior move transition specialists provide expertise related to organizing, senior move management, transition and relocation issues affecting older adults. Senior Villages

Villages bring together volunteer-based services and supports to help seniors live in their homes as active, valued members of the community for as long as they would like. Across the country, the village movement is represented by community-based, peer-run, member-driven organizations (Villages) offering members a wide variety of practical services, arranging for social activities, and providing information about useful resources. Villages structures and services reflect the unique needs of their communities, embrace a not for profit ethic and can be all volunteer, staffed or a combination of models. Village operations are often sustained by a blend of membership fees, donor support and grant funding. For information on joining a village in your Prince George’s County community please call: • Hyattsville Aging in Place, 301-887-3101 • Cheverly Village, 240-770-1033 • Helping Hands University Park, 301-892-6636 If you are interested in forming a village in your community or interested in attending an Aging in Place Prince George’s County - Village Working Group meeting, please call 240-542-2012. 7

Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are non-health professionals with a chronic disease themselves.

Family Caregivers Program provides assistance to caregivers; who may include family, friends, and members of the community, with access to support groups, problem solving, education, respite care, and other support services.

Senior Assisted Living Group Home Subsidy Program combines housing with supportive services for seniors who need regular assistance with activities of daily living, but are not in need of nursing home placement. By offering congregate meals, housekeeping, personal services and 24-hour supervision, this program enables frail elders to continue living in the community. The homes are licensed by the Department of Health.

Meals are served at the congregate site locations and are delivered to those homebound seniors within the community. The program provides hot and frozen meals to eligible participants. Senior Medicare Patrol is a program designed to reduce the amount of federal and state funds lost, due to health insurance fraud, by increasing the public’s ability to detect and report possible fraud, waste, and abuse. Telephone Reassurance Program recruits volunteers from the community, senior centers and other volunteer programs to place daily reassuring telephone calls to senior citizens within Prince George’s County. The goal of the program is to eliminate some of the concerns facing homebound senior citizens who live alone, thereby, reducing social isolation. The program provides the opportunity for seniors to connect by telephone with a friendly voice; this allows individuals to stay in contact with their community and helps decrease the feelings of loneliness and isolation. The Program also provides added peace of mind for relatives who live out of town.

The bright yellow Senior SmarTrip® card for citizens age 65 and older enables seniors to get a discounted fare on Metrobus and Metrorail. A SmarTrip® card is easy to use and faster than a farecard.

Please note: Reduced fare SmarTrip® cards for senior citizens are not sold in vending machines located in Metro stations. Metro parking fees are NOT reduced.

The interview and assessment appointment will be conducted at our main headquarters building in Washington, DC, where the applicant’s independent travel skills and ability to use public transportation will be evaluated, including the ability to walk or travel a measured distance. During the interview, the applicant will also will be given information regarding Metro’s Reduced Fare Program for Metrobus and Metrorail. • If a mobility aid is used, it must be brought to the assessment, along with the completed original and signed application. • Metro will be provided transportation to the interview free of charge from all locations within the core service area. The specialist will inform the applicant when scheduling the appointment if the pick-up address falls within the core service area. Applications also have the option of providing their own transportation to the appointment. • Once the assessment is complete, the applicant will receive written notification of the accessible travel option that fits their travel needs within 7-10 business days after assessment. If it is determined that the applicant qualifies for MetroAccess, they will be mailed notification along with the appropriate MetroAccess Identification Card. NOTE: The ADA requires Metro to provide notification of an applicant’s eligibility status within 21 days of submitting a completed application. If, for any reason, it takes longer than that to process the determination, the applicant will be eligible to use MetroAccess until Metro completes the eligibility process. This is called “presumptive eligibility”. If 21 days have passed since Metro received the completed application, the applicant will be automatically granted eligibility for MetroAccess until the review process is completed. • If the applicant is found not eligible for paratransit services, they may be eligible for the Reduced Fare Program for People with disabilities. If eligible they will be automatically enrolled and will receive a Reduced Fare (Disability) ID Card. Applicants have the right to appeal if found ineligible for MetroAccess and information on the appeal process will be sent along with notifications of ineligibility. 39


Transportation Resource Guide MetroAccess reserves the right to require a new eligibility assessment at any time. Reasons a new eligibility assessment might be required include, but are not limited to: • Instances when there may have been possible improvements in a customer’s ability to use public transit and/or • Removal of physical barriers that previously prevented using accessible public transportation. All MetroAccess customers are required to recertify for service periodically. Approximately 60 and 30 days prior to the expiration of a customer’s eligibility, a reminder phone call will be made informing the customer that their eligibility for service is due to expire. At that time they will be directed to contact the Transit Authority Center to obtain an application for service. It is important to note that while we attempt to contact each customer, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that they are recertified for the service prior to the expiration of their eligibility period. As a reminder to customers all MetroAccess ID Cards have the expiration date printed on the front of the ID card.
